In this community-engaged research study from Massachusetts, community health centers worked with communities partners to increase COVID-19 testing. CHCs strengthened these partnerships through local advisory groups and community outreach communications. This study compared testing among health centers that strengthened these relationships with health centers that acted as controls and functioned as they previously had.
